Go develop something yourself then. Calling the folks who make your past time possible lazy is retarded. You have no idea how much work goes into even the games you think are shit...

Lazy developers exist. Deal with it.

I love the backseat developers on this site. Devs for years have been saying that the PS3 was hard to develop for. This was said from day one.

Kevnb, there's no point in trying to explain exactly why devs (3rd parties) has such problems with the PS3.

There was a member of this site who claimed to be a student of game development who posted something along the lines of "developers program in the easiest language and then simply transfer the syntax on other platforms."

So yeah, developers be lazy. All you have to do is look at the lazy programming of Bethesda to see that, that and the games that have annual releases are definitely a product of lazy developers.
Sorry, but I know how hard it is to create a game. An incredible amount of work goes into it. Even for small cellphone games. I'd hardly call someone lazy just because the quality of their game is low. They may be untalented, but the fact that they made a game that went to market and passed QA is proof that they are anything but lazy.

So how much work goes into polished, bug free games that we consider great ? There are tons of examples for this.
M-M  +   987d ago
@kevnb You have to realize, developers do this for a living. If you've made it to the point where you're developing for consoles, developing games should be a cake walk, which means that there should be no reason to be lazy. I see where you're coming from though.

PS4 and PC gamers win!
ziggurcat  +   987d ago
well, there is bethesda... but i imagine everyone else will do just fine with the PS4 architecture.
MysticStrummer  +   987d ago
Bethesda will achieve their dream of having the same bugs on all platforms.

Sony are literally doing every single thing right :D

Lazy developers..agree...oh the Cell processor is to much work...

Everything Sony did is good for this gen gaming. I love that Nintendo is doing their own thing as well.

We will get specific experiences on each console and all will have their own great games.

I've never owned Sony but I may buy a PS4. It looks great.

Great to hear, the ease of the PS4 will allow developers to absolutely blitz the console in terms of unlocking its potential.

They gave the developers exactly what they wanted so there are no gripes against it. They can't say the PS4 is hard to develop for if this is the architecture they wanted.So everyone wins.Sony gets their support and developers don't have to work as hard to adapt to it and we get awesome games and no third party excuses

This is why the core gamers belong to Sony. Everyone else abandoned us except Sony. Thank you Sony.

Can't argue with this.

" Everyone else abandoned us"

Dude, you are cracking me up, ROFL, you sounded like a kid from a foster home, com 'on son, it is only video games, nobody is abandoning anyone.
Lvl_up_gamer  +   986d ago
Well Sony hasn't given me a core game in over 2 years until GoW just came out a couple days ago.

MS gave me Halo and Forza. That's not including the XBLA titles.

Looks to me it was Sony that abandoned the core. Not MS.

@ level_up_gamer
Stop it.
Last year the PS3 released All stars, Starhawk, Twisted Metal, Tales of graces, journey, sly cooper, mlb the show 2012. Not to mention a slew of vita games.

Now in 2013 the PS3 has ni no kuni, GOW, then last of us. Next the PS4. On top of that the PS3 had outsold the 360.

Looks to me Sony has all the bases coverd. Sony didn't abandon anybody when it comes to gaming.

M$ releases a halo, froza, and gears every year nothing new. They have have to spread out their releases because they have no other games.

Nice try.

What do they mean at heart is still a gaming console? That's what it is as a whole.

Hopefull if it's this easy to dev, less time/work/frustration actually go into the development and more time can be spent deciding the pormative pre-development issues that plagued the stories of this generation...I am really hoping for better experiences..this gen got gameplay down in several releases but I am so unimpressed witha majority of the stories I play through.
Ezz2013  +   987d ago
well, bioshock and the last of us and beyond are on their way
so they might change you mind
